This years Annual Report stated:

“It is with very great regret that we have to record the death of Her Grace, Nina, Duchess of Hamilton and Brandon, our beloved President, who died on 12th January 1951. She died as she would have wished, whilst carrying out her work in the cause of humanity. Together with two officers of the International Humanitarian Bureau, she was received in private audience by the Pope to present a Petition signed by over two hundred Societies. On her return journey, travelling through a snowstorm, she caught a chill from which she did not recover. On 18th January she was laid to rest at Ferne, Dorset, after a life wholly devoted to the Humanitarian movement. Representatives from this Society, of which Her Grace was President from the year 1918 until her death, attended the funeral service held at Salisbury Cathedral, and the Memorial Service held at a later date at the Parish Church, Hamilton.”
